Revolution in Dental Treatments with Laser Technology!
Laser dental treatment is one of the dental treatment technologies developed in recent years. Laser dental treatment, which offers treatment without touching teeth and gingiva, is the method that causes the least damage to the tooth structure. Laser treatment, which was initially used only in tooth whitening and soft tissue operations, has become frequently used in dentistry.
In which areas is laser dental treatment used?
The laser preferred in implant, caries removal, dental filling treatments; it is used in the treatment of soft oral tissue lesions, in dental surgery, aesthetic dental applications, deep gingival cleaning, treatment of gingival stains and tooth sensitivity.
It is also preferred in laser, aphthous ulcers and herpes treatments and root canal treatment applications, which have high success in permanent teeth whitening.
How is Laser Dental Treatment Applied?
Laser dental treatment is the surgical use of laser beam. The use of the laser will vary according to the mouth, tooth and jaw problems of the patient. Bone removal procedures and various bone reshaping required in laser-assisted bone operations can be done without damaging the surrounding tissues.
In some stages of implant applications, laser is used to open the gingiva. Thus, without the need for incision, the treatment is completed without bleeding. It is also used safely in laser teeth whitening, aphthous ulcers and herpes treatments. The method and duration of laser treatment are determined by the dentist.
Advantages of laser dental treatment
Laser dental treatment, which shortens the treatment application and recovery time and offers treatment without bleeding, provides comfortable treatment for both the doctor and the patient. Gingival laser treatment advantages:
- There is almost no bleeding compared to conventional treatment methods.
- Anesthesia is used very little during dental treatment with laser.
- It is relaxing for those who are afraid of dental needles and tools.
- Less bleeding in diabetes and systematic patients creates a very comfortable working environment.
- Wound healing occurs faster than conventional methods.
- Since full sterilization is provided in very difficult root canal treatments, the chance of the tooth to be saved is very high.
- It is suitable for children with fear of doctors, who will start new treatment, and those who have had bad experiences in the past.
Laser tooth extraction, dental filling, tooth whitening and gingival treatment are easily applied. A treatment plan is created specifically for each patient.
Does Laser Work in Sensitive Teeth?
Laser dental treatment is suitable for sensitive teeth. Supportive treatments can be applied to eliminate tooth sensitivity before the application. Sensitivity can be removed by closing the tooth canals with laser beam.
Can laser be applied twice in the same place?
Laser gingival treatment can be applied several times as long as it is controlled. No allergic reaction is observed during gingival treatment with laser. There is no scientific evidence that the laser causes allergies. Therefore, it is a safe process.
